Addleshaw Goddard has appointed four partners

Addleshaw Goddard LLP has appointed four partners at its Dublin office, as it approaches the first anniversary of its merger with Eugene F Collins.

The appointments, which bring the total number of partners in the office to 28, came as the firm unveiled ambitious growth targets.

There has been a double-digit headcount increase in Dublin over the past 12 months. 

The newly promoted partners are:

  • Frances Colclough (real estate),
  • Erc Walsh (finance),
  • Lorna Osborne (corporate and commercial), and
  • David Heneghan (dispute resolution and immigration).


Since the merger, the firm has already expanded its expertise in these key areas to meet demand.

Country head Mark Walsh said: “When Addleshaw Goddard established its presence in Ireland nearly one year ago, we announced our commitment to growing the business to better serve our clients.

“Since then we have also promoted one partner in competition and procurement, Eoghan Ó hArgáin, and recruited two external partners, with Neil Bourke joining our real-estate team from McCann FitzGerald and Stephen McLoughlin joining from Beauchamps to head up the regulatory practice in Ireland.

“We will continue to add talented lawyers in key areas where we see opportunities to service our clients and grow our market share."
